I'm with Bobbie on this one, Bulova 23 "K". The ad proves it out beyond any doubt.

hello,

 

new to mybulova, have a 1963 23 jewels model i suspect is a regatta 23, and 2 1955 23 Ks...i will post photos soon with decent camera

my question is, WHERE CAN I GET THAT BAND?

i find it most becoming for the K, i have been searching high and low for that particular style, curved, tapered lug tree bark in gold tone

thus far have only been able to find 17mm stainless models

 

also...is the displayed 23 K above for sale? ( isee it is not, but was posted some time ago, things may have changed ;)  )
